Bravotv.com: Did you think it would be you and Kerry at the end? If not, who did you think it would be?
Chris Cosentino: I predicted that Missy Robbins would make it to the final two but her accident forced her to leave the competition early. The game is so dynamic that anything can happen.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the concept of the final challenge?
Chris Cosentino: The final challenge was a very personal experience. I’m passionate about food for its ability to create such a profound experience for chefs and diners alike. The final challenge really resonated with me for that reason.

Bravotv.com: A big decision you made was going to three different shops, while Kerry only went to Whole Foods. Do you have any regrets about that decision or wish you had done any aspect of that differently?
Chris Cosentino: I still feel like it was the right decision. Win or lose, I did not want to compromise on the ingredients that I would use. In order for me to put out my very best dish I did not want to make substitutions so those three stops were necessary.
